I had the Memphis taco and it was the best thing I've had in a while. The bbq sauce is a perfect accent to the coleslaw, something I usually hate. I had to restrain myself from getting another. I also had the chips and salsa, which was equally good. I will be returning soon.

Several people had told us what a great place this was. People outside waiting for it to open usually means a great place. Wrong. Chips and dip, usually free at other places, cost @$4. 1/2 cup guacamole @$4. Enchiladas were no better than a Taco Bell. Yuk. Spend your money at Twisted Taco or No Mas Cantina and don't be...

This is now a chain with four restaurants thruout the greater Atlanta area. My wife and I have eaten here since it was a single operation called "Sundown Cafe". It is unusual in that Eddie, the owner, is Mexican and the name sounds Mexican, but their speciaalty is food of the southwest, New Mexico, Arizona, etc. Eddie has that majic... More

I thought the food and pricing was great, this location is noisy and a bit crowded with a line out the door the whole time. Some inside & outside seating, service is alright but you have to order everything at once as you don't have a tableside server

I enjoy this place as the service is vey helpful and they help to find you a seat while you eat for your food. The price and value are really worth it. The guacamole and chips are vey fresh. My favorite taco is the fried chicken one. The others are all good but that one to me is most original.... More

My wife and I come to this taqueria all the time. Delicious tacos good margaritas and my wife is a big fan of the enchiladas with the green salsa. Line is intimidating but it goes pretty fast. Parking is a hassle with the construction.

Stopped here for lunch on Saturday. Though it owns at 12, people started lining up at 11:15. We know why! Great tacos and enchiladas at a very reasonable price in a nice area. Everything we tried was great but the biggest hits were the carnitas tacos and the chicken enchilada with green pork chili sauce.

We try to get by here at least once a month. Enjoy their food, especially when they one of their weekly shrimp taco specials. Second favorite is fish taco. Except for one cashier who takes your order, most of the help is pretty neutral, strictly business in their demeanor when interacting with customers. Not a problem, its the food and... More

And they are warmer this year. This place is a gem. Consistent quality for modestly spicy southwestern food. Love the tacos, guacamole, cheese dip, and jalapeño slaw but the annual Hatch chile fest is here and they are served separately with breading and cheese. I remove most of the extras and just enjoy the chile. Worth the wait or go... More
